After much consultation, the International Federation of Muaythai Associations (IFMA) confirmed the postponement of international events until further notice. As previously mentioned, the Pan Am Championship originally set in Lima, Peru this week has been postponed with the safety of organizers, volunteers, athletes, coaches, and travellers in mind.

The IFMA World Championship originally set for early June in Abu Dhabi is to be postponed for late October or early November. Organizers in Abu Dhabi are taking measures to limit the spread of COVID-19, and are working closely with IFMA to ensure athletes have fair access to this qualification event.

At this time, the IFMA Youth Championship is intended to continue with its scheduled dates of September 18-27, 2020.

The International World Games Association (IWGA) is also taking into consideration the cancellation of qualifying events this year that lead up to The World Games 2021. They are in discussions with sport federations at this time.

More updates are to be expected within the next few weeks as more advisories come in. IFMA and Muaythai Canada will take into consideration any travel advisories in place, and keep nak muay updated.
